Animation Time! - Mortimer (Monster) Rig

Today's Inspiration:
you don’t question it, you just start building it and make it what it is, and tell the story along the way.

[The process] is never the same, sometimes it’s very smooth, and other times it’s just beating your head against a brick wall until you’re bloody, then coming out the other side in a better place for it.
